The first trailer has dropped for The Last Witch Hunter, the upcoming action-fantasy starring Vin Diesel as…the last witch hunter.
The Furious 7 star plays Kaulder, a warrior who was cursed with the immortality of a Queen Witch he slayed centuries ago. When that Queen is resurrected in modern day New York, well, it’s on.
Diesel does his thing in what looks like a generic but entertaining little pic. It’s hard to give much of an opinion, considering the length of this MTV spot, but there’s enough here to know what you’re getting. Fingers crossed there’s a fun popcorn actioner here.
Directed by Breck Eisner, who brought us Sahara and The Crazies.
The Last Witch Hunter, also starring Rose Leslie, Elijah Wood, Michael Caine, Ólafur Darri Ólafsson, and Julie Engelbrecht, hits U.S. cinemas on October 23, 2015.
Official synopsis for The Last Witch Hunter:
The modern world holds many secrets, but the most astounding secret of all is that witches still live amongst us; vicious supernatural creatures intent on unleashing the Black Death upon the world. Armies of witch hunters battled the unnatural enemy across the globe for centuries, including KAULDER, a valiant warrior who managed to slay the all-powerful QUEEN WITCH, decimating her followers in the process. In the moments right before her death, the QUEEN curses KAULDER with her own immortality, forever separating him from his beloved wife and daughter in the afterlife. Today KAULDER is the only one of his kind remaining, and has spent centuries hunting down rogue witches, all the while yearning for his long-lost loved ones. However, unbeknownst to KAULDER, the QUEEN WITCH is resurrected and seeks revenge on her killer causing an epic battle that will determine the survival of the human race.
